Grateful Grandfather Labels Kidney Donor A Blessing

A man from Kentucky, Gerald Mathewson, is in desperate need of a kidney transplant, and is reaching out for a potential donor. The 65-year-old grandfather has been diagnosed with end-stage kidney disease, and without a transplant, his doctors have given him a short time to live. Mathewson is now calling his potential donor “an angel,” hoping to find someone willing to save his life.

Mathewson’s family has been sharing his story on social media platforms and raising awareness about his condition. They have set up a GoFundMe page to cover the medical expenses associated with the transplant. As of now, no donor has been found, but Mathewson remains hopeful that someone will come forward.

The family emphasizes that anyone with a blood type of O positive or O negative could be a potential match. They encourage interested individuals to contact the UK Transplant Center for more information. With time running out, the Mathewson family is urging the public to consider becoming Mathewson’s lifesaving “angel” and provide a much-needed kidney transplant.
